the country and talked to people. i found the same thing when i was on the cnn express on that bus trip. people understand what this means. they understand that we have to cut back on our spending. they are concerned about the lack of sophistication with which washington is handling this. >> yeah, but when? look, i get so sick of it. everybody says we have to cut spending. even my good friend david walker who i have so much respect for. david, when are we going to cut the spending? the answer always seems to be we'll do it tomorrow, next year, the year after. that maybe it's not such a bad thing if we start right now. i'm not so opposed to 10% across the board in the spending programs. by the way, mohammed, i have to say this. you know, you say the tax cuts aren't going to hurt the economy. my goodness, look at your state of california. the ding bats in california just raised the highest income tax rate to 13%. every business and high income person is going to move to texas which by the way is the fastest growing state in the country which has no income tax. so i think tax rates do matt
've had tonight but you do have very good fbi sources. i want to turn to bob baer. he's the cnn contributcontribut. does this make sense to you that this could be the sequence of events? >> oh, absolutely, but i tend to attribute more significance to the fbi of getting into petraeus' e-mails. the fbi, as a matter of course, doesn't look at affairs, doesn't read military officers' e-mails or cia officers. they have to be alerted to some sort of crime or counterintelligence problem. i can only speculate what that would be. maybe it was something in the book that broadwell wrote. there was some classified information. it could have been other leaks to the press they looked into, and then once they opened a relationship like is, they found the rest of it, and that they're able to get a warrant to continue to read his e-mails or hers, but something sparked this, something that we don't know about so far. >> what started it was a general filtering system not by the fbi but probably by nsa which looks for any abuse or problem with use of government e-mails. >> right. i think the situat
remains a suspect and is serving time for killing his third wife kathleen savio. cnn is reporting that the fbi had a tip that he was involved with his biographer paul abroad while but try as gave president obama his resignationpetraeus gave his resignation today and president barack obama reluctantly accepted and praised him for his service. the fbi said they were concerned about her access to his email. >> nobody believes that this was what they called a honey trap that is it woman controlled by a foreign service this was an extramarital affair for which he has paid a very serious price. in a little toletter to colleagues he said that he showed poor judgment second-in- command at the agency is now the acting director. on the strength of his reelection victory president barack obama says that america backed his plan to raise taxes on the wealthy. we are here to explain what it all means. >> congress if they don't act before the end of the year almost every taxpayer will see his or her taxes go up the average household would owe the government $3,500 more every year both parties
cnn. >> i can say that it was a learning experience. >> are you sorry? >> that we are listening to constituents and that we are going to make a change. i think people expect a change. i think we could have done better. we will do better, and we'll make it the best we can next time. >> the problem is, so many in florida say they have heard that before. >> yeah. >> back in 2000, craig, again in 2004. 2 2000 was the punch cards and 2004 most of the state moved over to another system which was touch screens. that was supposed to be better but then there was no paper trail. they moved forward in the state to what they call an optical scan. it's like those testses that you take where you fill out the circle and feed them into scanners. in some cases the scanners jammed. each individual voter had to feed in their vote themselves and in some cases, depending on the region of the state that you were in, you had ten pages to feed in there. so it was a real disaster. but you hear from the secretary of state that they are going to attempt to improve things in florida. >> i was down there a
of the election. we could have done better. we will do better, the secretary of state said on cnn during pointed questioning from the anchor. but in an exclusive interview the "herald times," scott made no apologies for what led to an incomplete vote, three days after the election. what i'm trying to do is improve the way government works, scott said. i believe in efficiency. i believe every vote has to count. i want to have a good process that people feel good about. back to the phones, talking about president obama's claim that the election gives him a mandate to tax the rich. the next call comes from kim in mayor the a, georgia, making between $50,000 and $100,000 a year. go ahead, kim. caller: hi. i don't think the election gives him a mandate for anything. i also believe that you're not going to be able to really truly affect the situation by taxing the upper -- there's not enough money. you have to tax the middle class. the middle class is the biggest class, and, you know, when obamacare goes through, there's going to be like 20 taxes go through on the middle class. so when people voted fo
